MAC Huggable Lipcolour
MAC Huggable Lipcolours

These are the last four shades of the new MAC Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) formula! It feels good to be done. :)  There is a lot of consistency across the shades, particularly in terms of texture, wear, and feel, though there was more variance in level of color coverage–some where semi-sheer while others were semi-opaque. I found the formula was a mix of MAC’s Cremesheen lipsticks and Mineralize Rich lipsticks. The new formula is somewhat hydrating with semi-sheer to semi-opaque color, lasts between two and five hours (lighter colors are quicker to disappear, deeper shades last longest), and have a consistency that’s a bit stiff.  The texture will tug and pull at the lip if you immediately try to glide it across lips; instead, I recommend pressing and holding for about five seconds, than gliding the bullet across lips as the warmth of your lip will help melt the color.  It does feel clingy–huggable–when worn, which is noticeable throughout the wear, but it is not drying.  Please see part one for a more in-depth review on the formula overall (and part two for four more shades).

These are supposed to launch online on December 26th. The press release lists an in-store release date of January 2nd, though I would suggest checking with local counters/stores to ensure it’s not also releasing alongside Magnetic Nude (on December 26th). There are twelve shades available, with two shades being released everywhere but Asia (Rich Marron and Rusty), and two shades released exclusive to Asia (Extra Sweet and Sweet Creation).

Red Necessity is described as a “deep warm wine.” It’s a cool-toned, medium-dark raspberry red. It had semi-opaque color coverage–more color than most of the other shades in the line-up–and wore well for five hours and left behind a soft, pinky-red stain. Dior Minuit (LE, $36.00) is mor ematte, brighter. MAC Prepare for Pleasure (LE, $16.00) is more matte, less pink. NARS Luxembourg (P, $25.00) is more matte. MAC Love Goddess (LE, $16.00) is deeper. MAC Scan-delicious (LE, $19.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Rich Marron is described as a “mid-tone nude.” It’s a medium-dark, warm, rose-tinged brown with a light shine. It was semi-sheer, and it didn’t apply as evenly as I would have liked. It lasted two and a half hours on me. MAC Fresh and Frisky (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Too Faced Sweet Maple (P, $21.00) is more opaque, so it appears a bit darker. MAC Bad Girl RiRi (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Glamour Era (P, $22.00) is warmer. MAC Mocha (LE, $16.00) is also warmer, more matte. MAC Spice (LE, $16.00) is slightly pinker. See comparison swatches.

Rusty is described as a “deep auburn.” It’s a darkened, warm red with a slight hint of brown and soft shine. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the color applied evenly overall. It lasted well for four and a half hours on me. Fyrinnae Winter Romance (P, $7.00) is similar, deeper. Chanel Enigmatique (135) (P, $34.00) is more frosted. NARS Golshan (P, $25.00) is more matte, slightly lighter. NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is redder, more matte. Guerlain Habit Rouge (P, $35.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Touche! is described as a “light beige.” It’s a light peach with a luminous shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but this one slipped around a bit more and didn’t apply evenly. I also noticed that the color settled into lip lines noticeably after an hour and a half. It lasted just over two hours on me. Givenchy Beige Plume (102) (P, $36.00) is lighter, more opaque, more matte. MAC Antonio’s Girls (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Chanel Secret (85) (LE, $34.00) is sheerer. Chanel Gourmandise (76) (P, $34.00) looks similar on. Guerlain Sous Le Vent (P, $35.00) is more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Uber Beige (P, $24.00) is slightly pinker and less warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

P.S. — Fixed the labeling error and fixed Glossover not showing!
